Man Suspected Of Burglarizing R. Kelly's Homes Arrested

The man suspected of organizing burglaries at R. Kelly's houses has been arrested.

(AllHipHop News) A man suspected of masterminding the recent burglaries at R. Kelly's homes has turned himself in to police in Georgia.

Authorities issued a warrant for one of the singer's associates, Alfonso Walker, last week after he was named as the brains behind the incidents, which targeted two of Kelly's properties in the Atlanta area over America's Thanksgiving holiday in late November, while the star was on tour.

Walker surrendered to cops at Johns Creek Police Department on Monday, and has since been booked on two counts of burglary, two charges of theft by taking, and a further two for theft by deception.

Sources previously told TMZ three men had been caught leaving one of the houses in a van, and told police detectives they had been hired by Walker, who wanted them to sell everything because Kelly was moving his operation to Chicago, Illinois.

Walker, who was just a part-time employee, was subsequently found in possession of some of Kelly's furniture.

Other items stolen include music memorabilia and clothing.

Following Walker's arrest, the "I Believe I Can Fly" hitmaker issued a statement via his representative, which reads: "Mr. Kelly thanks the Johns Creek Police Department for its swift and diligent work in arresting the responsible parties. He would also like to thank all of his fans around the world for their love and support, as well as the community for being very cooperative."
